“Spawn” #300 heads back for a second printing
Spawn #300 has been rushed back for a second printing.
Granted, that’s hardly surprising, given that it’s a landmark issue from a popular publisher and beloved creator, but it’s still cool and worth celebrating.
Not to mention the issue features the talents of penciled Greg Capullo-- who makes his return to the character he left his mark on so long ago-- and superstar writer Scott Snyder. That’s, you know, a pretty big deal too. Those guys are pretty good.
Spawn itself is mere weeks away from becoming the longest-running creator-owned comic in history, and the fact that this issue was projected to sell well and still went back for another printing is nothing to sneeze at. Comics selling well is nothing but good news for the industry, so check out the details below.
MILESTONE ISSUE SPAWN #300 RUSHED BACK TO PRINT
PORTLAND, Ore. 09/05/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that the highly-anticipated, milestone issue—SPAWN #300 by Todd McFarlane, President at Image Comics and creator of SPAWN—has sold out at the distributor level. It is being fast-tracked for a second printing in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand.
The record-setting SPAWN #300 hit comic shops shelves yesterday. The SPAWN #300, second printing (Diamond Code JUL198857) will be available on Wednesday, October 2.
Momentum and frenzied buzz surrounding the classic antihero series continues to build leading into the record-breaking SPAWN #301—also scheduled to hit stores on Wednesday, October 2—when SPAWN becomes the longest running creator-owned comic in the world.
SPAWN is currently being adapted for film—a gritty, R-rated reimagining—which will mark Image President, co-founder and SPAWN creator, Todd McFarlane’s film directorial debut. McFarlane, an Emmy/Grammy-winning producer/director is also on board as screenwriter and producer.
SPAWN sold an unprecedented 1.7 million copies at the time it was released and is one of the world’s best-selling and longest-running monthly comic books, with hundreds of millions sold worldwide in more than 120 countries, and 15 different languages.
The comic became an Emmy Award-winning animated series on HBO and a New Line Cinema feature film that grossed more than $100 million. McFarlane went on to direct and produce award-winning and critically acclaimed projects for top movie studios and record labels.
Spawn #300 will release its second printing on October 2, the same day as Spawn #301.
